Are my pickups really DEAD?
Last weekend it sounded like my bridge pickup was single coil. I kept checking the toggle switch thinking I was on my middle pickup but I wasn't. I think one side of the humbucker is dead. Now not only does it squeal like a pig, but it sounds like a single coil too. I'm going to switch my neck pickup with my bridge pickup since I don't use anything but the bridge pickup anyway and see how that goes until I can get that one replaced. Thank you becalvert for the info on dipping pickups. It doesn't sound that hard and I've printed out those directions and I'm definately going to try that on a different guitar, seeing that I don't think repotting it will help at this point. This place is FULL of people that know their sh*t and I apprieciate all the help you guys give me. I know NOTHING except how to play. I went to the Dimarzio site for a price and I don't even know which pickup I should get to replace it. I know from this website that Jem77FP's have PAF's in them, but I want to keep the look of the guitar the same, BUT put something really HOT in it's place. I like mean and nasty tone, any suggestions jonrayl???
